Introduction

R.e. - Marriage - AO3 "Lifelong marriage is too difficult even for Christians today. The church should be willing to drop this vow." "Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer, showing that you have considered more than one point of view." Today, statistics show that there are many more marriage breakdowns than ever before. No relationship last forever, as people change. 3000 children a week are told that their parents are splitting up in the UK. 40% of all marriages breakdown, therefore this shows that divorce is on the increase. Many people believe that there are more temptations to cheat on your partner these days. ...read more.

Violence can cause a marriage to break down, as no one should have to put up with violence just so they stay married. Finance can help a marriage to break down as financial problems can cause arguments. Children can also cause a marriage to break down because they can also cause arguments. Christians make a vow to be faithful before God in a church. This vow is "till death us do part." This suggests that you should be married to the same person until the day you die. ...read more.

Conclusion

Woman vicars are now allowed in the church. This shows that both people and times change. As a result, some will say - if the church can change this point, why not make it easier on people who find it impossible to keep a marriage going for life? I think that they are right to say this. If people find it impossible to stay in their marriage then they should allowed to end it, as this will make them happier. I think that lifelong marriage can be too difficult even for Christians today, but it is not impossible. I don't think that they should get rid of the vow "till death us do part", but I think that they should change it slightly as some people may find it impossible not to break this vow. ...read more.
